"it's aged ridiculously well and if anything, the very subdued sound that rubbed so many people the wrong way gives it this certain uniqueness that i learned to appreciate after their comeback album's extremely over the top approach to songwriting and mixing"



Completely agree. SS is very underrated, but it definitely doesn't have the production these geniuses deserve.

tru, I heard a few tracks suffered from audio glitches wherein the volume was a lot lower than it was meant to be, but still it's the first Arc album I heard around the time it came out

i think it's good that all their albums tried to do their own thing! a cold, spacier-sounding approach akin to what made LMI so appealing was niiice, even with the change in vocalists

I am warming up to this a little bit more though, in all fairness. A great deal more in your face with the prog metal elements that works quite well in some instances, but too theatric even for Arcturus' standards in others. Fuck it, a 3.5 feels just about right (might as well take threading the common threads together all the way eh eh?)

Really astonished that in this decade, an album from them even managed to come out.

Something about the modern atmosphere on Sham doesn't sit too well with me. Victorian or far future plz.

is it a hot take if I say that the live version of the Sham tracks with vortex on vox go unbelievably hard?

Ha, I came here to say Crashland is a nice song. One year to the day - nice coincidence.
